The Research and Development Center for Precision Medicine (PMC) was established as Japan’s first omics analysis center aiming to develop a $1000 genome sequencing technology. Using state-of-the-art technologies in genome sequencing and mass spectrometry, the Center aims to provide analytic and translational approaches to provide precise diagnosis of cancers and various diseases in a data-driven/evidence-based approach.
The Center has been working with the Tsukuba Preventive Medicine Research Center, which offers a comprehensive medical examination utilizing the function of initiative prevention of medical research. In order to promote collaborations with leading domestic and international research institutions, the PMC is also active in cross-border multidisciplinary networking.
The Center aims to establish a research infrastructure for the implementation and realization of Precision Medicine, to improve/determine the best course of treatment for each individual.
